FACTS ABOUT BOTOX

Truth: The truth is that it is not harmful. Indeed, it aids in muscle relaxation. It has been there for 20 years and poses no threat.
- Myth: It creates an unnatural appearance and freezes your face
Truth: This is a widespread misconception perpetuated by botched or excessive Botox treatments. However, when done correctly, it can produce some fantastic results. The changes are extremely subtle, and most people will not even notice you’ve had Botox.
- Myth: If you discontinue treatment after one session, the face deteriorates.
Truth: This treatment is effective for approximately 3-4 months. Once the effect wears off, the muscles regain full movement. As with other treatments, you must decide whether or not to schedule your next appointment.
It aids in the prevention of fine lines and wrinkles almost immediately following the treatment. It requires little, if any, downtime. When it comes to Botox, safety is not an issue.
